Clinical Applications of the Gui-Ghost Points
Endemic in all ancient societies is the belief in the transmigration of the ling-soul that participates in conception and death and its smooth transition during these processes as the non-material (shen) merges with or disintegrates from the material body (jing). Within Chinese culture, which is inseparable from Chinese medicine, lies the belief that an uneasy dying process could render aspects of the ling-soul into a gui-ghost. Such a disjunctive separation could cause gui-ghost to linger in the human realm and can become an etiology of disease. As these “superstitious” concepts began to be displaced through modernization or self-responsibility, the notion of gui-ghost was replaced with tangible substances, such as turbidity, dampness, and phlegm. Learn how to utilize the ghost points as recorded by the famed Tang Dynasty Daoist physician, Sun Si-Miao (581-682 CE), can be applied to clinical practice, ranging from mental and neurological conditions to digestive and respiratory issues.

Clinical Applications of the Eight Extraordinary Vessels
Qi Jing Ba Mai (Eight Extraordinary Vessels) are considered one of the most elusive and important channel systems of acupuncture. Elusive due to the difficulty of accessing these vessels historically and important as they are associated with the constitutional level of our existence. These channels are conduits of yuan-source qi which define our temperament (ben xing 本性) and the way we consciously or unconsciously articulate our genetic predisposition (ming yun 命運 fate-destiny). As such, these vessels play a crucial role in how yuan qi (元、原氣) disseminates yin and yang based on the influences of gender, age, culture, education, and lifestyle — or nature and nurture. Learn how to access these vessels and their significance in clinical practice, especially pertaining to congenital, familial, and cultural issues manifested as illnesses.
